The Return of Tip

I've tried to be unexcited about it because it's been a long time coming and could be a collosal... bah, forget it. This is Q-Tip: the one-man timeline between the Native Tongues and the Soulquarians. At this point, everyone (right?) has one leaked album version/single or another, but looking at the tracklisting on the new cover above (smart move, Tip) there is still plenty of new music to savour. The man just threw a Listening Party, premiering new tracks like 'Dance on Glass' and 'Shaka', and the good people at Soulbounce were smart enough to film a couple of clips. He also talks about Lynwood Rose - his collaboration with D'Angelo and Raphael Saadiq; about The Standard - his collab with Common; about Phife's kidney operation, and about getting Obama on the album.

Don't know about you, but I'm sufficiently geeked.
